Are you saying that you cannot boot to the cd?

Been a while since I ran Ubuntu on a mac but as I remember you have to hold the key down for quite some time before it is recognized. Wait untill the icon of the penguin comes up on the screen and then pick that icon to boot off of.

Hope that is some help. It is all I remember about booting. You might try the mac forum, There should still be some folks using ppc machines with Ubuntu.
